1 – Place two-thirds cup of previously soaked great Northern beans in a slow cooker.  Add 1 chopped, medium onion.  Add 1 cup of barbecue sauce with 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce.  Add chicken broth just a little above the top of the food.  Cook on low for 6 hours.  Place the setting on “warm” until time for dinner.

2 – Place salmon in a large, covered baking dish with a little water.  Add broccoli florets around the salmon.  Season the dish, including the broccoli, with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil.  Sprinkle crushed almonds atop the entire dish.  Add one-third cup of soy sauce.  Set aside.
